Exceptionally fine and well detailed authentic votive terra cotta plaque from the Pagan Culture, Burma, 1200-1300CE. This is the only signed piece I have ever seen from this type of artifact. I acquired this along the Northern Thai/Burmese border around 15 years ago, at one time these were quite plentiful but I have not seen any authentic pieces for the past 5 years. Please note reference in last enlargement from “Ancient Art of Burma”. H: 9.5cm/ 3.8in and base W: 7cm/2.8in.

Abhaya Asian Antiques
Very rare late 19th- to early 20th CE storage basket from the Bidayuh people of Sarawak. For basket collectors this is a real “classic”. The lid is made from the skin of a sambar deer while the basket plaiting is all rattan with some bamboo slats on one side as a cushion; also the basket is lined inside with peeled wood. There are a few very minor repairs and holes here and there but overall I would consider this piece in very good condition given its age and environment...
